What We Treat

Mental health conditions are common in our society. In fact, the National Institute of Mental Health and other researchers indicate the following statistics:

  • An estimated 46.6 million Americans 18 years and older experience a diagnosable mental health condition in a given year, yet 60% of those with a mental health condition do not receive treatment.
  • More than 49.5 percent of youth, either currently or at some point during their young lives have experienced a mental health condition.
  • More than 15% of senior adults suffer from severe depression.
  • Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US with 47,000 annual deaths, and is the 2nd leading cause of death for youth ages 15-24.
  • 23 million Americans suffer from addiction, yet 88% of Americans with addiction are not treated.
  • Up to 90% of people with mental illness have significant improvement and decreased symptoms with effective treatment.
